Of the 32 participants nationally in Medicare’s Pioneer ACO program, only 13 produced savings for the federal government. Savings totaled $87.6 million nationwide. San Francisco’s Brown & Toland Physicians accounted for 12 percent of that, or $10.6 million, officials said Tuesday. Richard Fish, CEO of the 1,500-physician independent practice association or IPA, said 190 Brown & Toland doctors in San Francisco and the East Bay participated in year one of the Pioneer affordable care organization project.
